The Horizon Integrative Medicine Acupuncture Approach
Comprehensive - Strategic - Preventative
We know how exhausting it feels when you’ve tried everything to find relief, just to have your symptoms return again and again. That’s why we take a comprehensive and strategic approach when creating your acupuncture treatment protocol. Rather than focusing on your symptoms alone, we take a 3-phase approach that fixes the problem from the root. This is why our patients often achieve lasting results and complete recovery.
What is Cupping Therapy?
Cupping therapy is a form of medicine in which a local suction is created on the skin with the application of cups. Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This may relieve muscle tension, improve overall blood flow, and promote cell repair. It's also used for relaxation and well-being.
What are the discolorations left on the skin from Cupping Therapy?
Cupping may leave a temporary mark on the skin called "sha." Sha resembles a bruise but is not painful. Traditional Chinese Medicine regards the appearance of sha as an indication that toxins and stagnation are being pulled to the surface of the body, restoring healthy blood flow and qi to the muscle. Cupping involves the application of suction. Cupping can affect the body up to four inches into the tissues, causing the tissues to release toxins, activate the lymphatic system, clear colon blockages and activate the skin.
What do the discolorations indicate and how long do they last?
The marks result from dredging stagnation from within bodily tissues up closer to the surface of the skin, also helping to restore flow of energy and blood to the areas treated. This stagnation can include dead blood cells, old lymph fluid, and toxins that the body has not been able to eliminate through its circulatory system. The discoloration is temporary and can last anywhere between a few hours to 10 days before gradually fading away entirely. No pain or tenderness is typically felt following a cupping treatment.
How does Cupping feel? Is it painful?
Cupping clients usually report lasting changes for the better. Cupping has a sedating effect on the nervous system, and many people find it profoundly relaxing. After a cupping treatment, clients typically report feelings of relief, muscular release, pain relief and an increase in flexibility. Cupping is generally not painful. Some patients who suffer from chronic muscular disorders may feel minimal discomfort and should mention it so adjustments can be made.
